Thomas Müller on Robert Lewandowski: “We would be in favour of him staying.”

Speaking exclusively to Sky Germany, Thomas Müller has commented on the future of Robert Lewandowski, who has said he will not extend his contract with Bayern Munich.

“As far as his contract is concerned, things have now been said,” said Müller. “Let’s see what happens. He has a contract until 2023. That means Bayern has the matter in their hands. Of course, we would be in favour of him staying but we all know the business.”

When asked whether Lewandowski would still perform if he didn’t leave in the summer, Müller added: “Lewy is a top professional. When you’re on the pitch as a player, and especially as a striker, you want to perform.”

Speaking after Bayern Munich’s 2-2 draw against Wolfsburg on Saturday, Lewandowski told Sky: “I can confirm that I’ve spoke with Hasan [Salihamidžić] and informed him that my decision had been made and that I will not be extending my contract with Bayern. Both sides have to think of the future and we have to find the best solution for both sides.”

The 33-year-old has scored 344 goals in 374 games for Bayern Munich in all competitions.
